I really enjoyed reading this book, and I think that it is very useful for individuals involved in health care planning and service distribution and for people interested in the history of the treatment of depression, particularly in primary care. This book relates the history of the treatment of depression in the United States and the United Kingdom, particularly since World War II, with a focus on treatment in primary care settings. The book is informative and interesting in its historical perspectives, clearly revealing where we have been and how we got to where we are now.​
